the weapons, to his bow la. hezbollah fighters in lebanon. the syrian regime claims israel attacked a military facility in damascus. iran syria both support hezbollah, which calls the attack israeli aggression. they warned the syrian regime might be transferring weapons to hezbollah, and warned them not to. we were talking yesterday about what kind of retaliation might come. at least now they're talking. >> nobody seriously thinks the syrian military is going to strike israel. nobody thinks mr. i sat is insane enough to engage israel in a war, nor is iran. the question here is whether iran and syria might use their proxies, hezbollah in lebanon to carry out some sort of attack, and the key in at that that syrn statement is surprise attack. that sounds all sorts of alarm bells. >> andrew taylor was talking to me earlier, shep, from the washington institute, and he said everybody is very wary of here is a terrorist attack against some sort of israeli interest on the globe, and iran and syria have proven they're capable of that. >> shepard: he's weapons tran fers have happened for a long time, an

of what this debate is all about. let's go to teresa, joining us from north las vegas nevada. the democrat line. caller: good morning. i wanted to call in support of the president and democrats. i am a progressive and in independent thinker. i do not think you should use the 14th amendment, unless it comes to a really economic crash. i am for raising the debt ceiling. i believe that we need to pay our bills. i have to pay my bills. if i do not pay my credit card bills, my credit rating goes down. my credit score goes down. and i pay more in interest in the future. i think it is very irresponsible of these tea party republicans to hold the country hostage. there are other issues that can be negotiated for spending and raising revenues and the debt ceiling should not be a part of it. host: ok, thank you for calling. here is the editorial cartoonist of the post. the idea of minting a single coin valued at $1 trillion. using that to increase the debt limit. a number of stories saying that basically, this is not going to happen. his is what is reclined -- this -- what ezra kline writes he point
to these weapons. my view is, everybody is entitled to be safe. >> reporter: she called the nra veen nal but insists it's not personal with lapierre. >> he wants one thing, i want an entirely different thing. he's there for gun people, to allow them to have these guns regardless. they are fought virtually every kind of regulation. the time has come to change course. >> reporter: and when it comes to legislation, feinstein isn't only going to have to convince republicans. one of the interesting dynamics on this committee that is holding this hearing tomorrow is that the democratic chairman, wolf, pat leahy, is a supporter of gun rights. feinstein is concerned that the witness list is too skewed towards proponents of gun owners. >> so what you're saying is little dispute going on between dianne feinstein and patrick leahy, they are both democrats and on the liberal side of the democratic party but when it comes to gun rights, they disagree? >> reporter: that's right. they do disagree. i tried to interview patrick leahy. he said to watch the hearing tomorrow. he's known as la liberal but on
. obama flew to las vegas today to unveil his plan. one of the major sticking points is border security. now, just yesterday the white house enforcement has never been better but today the president called for making more improvements. and he played up the similarities between his idea and the senator's proposal. >> the time has come for common sense, comprehensive, immigration reform. >> for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. >> but analysts say there are differences, unlike the senators, the president did not say the feds have to improve border security before illegal immigrants can take a so-called path of citizenship. this morning on america's newsroom, one of those senators republican marco rubio telling me that is a deal him. >> it seems like he is starting to start a bidding war. we are not going to do an immigration bidding war. we have a set of principles, i have been talking about them for a number of weeks. fortunately there is a group of senate democrats and republicans here who had similar principles who were
a tax hike on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. everybody. >> sorrow la, roland you heard . he's doing it at 450. you can't say you won't negotiate on something you're going to have to negotiate on, right? >> actually you can. it's called negotiating position. we see it all the time. how many times have you had people when it comes to negotiating a contract i won't take less than this and then they do. that's what negotiation is all about. the whole point in having a hard stance is to for the opposition to come down on theirs. speaker boehner put out a proposal taxes on a million dollars. his own party rejected that. this is what you do in negotiations. take a hard line and you typically are going to soften it when you get a compromise. >> the problem is now the president has come out and said, chastised congress appropria appropriately. said i'm not going to negotiate. this will embold enthem to be nasty center >> i think part of the issue is when you look at the most of the republican members of the house they are coming from safe districts so they are keeping their potential
brown filling in for jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. president obama on his way to las vegas where he will try to rally support for the plan while setting out proposals of his own. the bipartisan plan unveiled yesterday calls for a path to citizenship and immigration overhaul, employment verification and worker programs. let's talk about it with bob cusack, the managing editor of "the hill." a lot of people might be confused by the fact that senators came out with one plan yesterday, the president comes out with a plan today. what's the political gamesmanship, i guess, that's going on here, bob? >> well, you have a lot of senators who want to have a hand in this, and so whether it's the judiciary committee chairman, patrick leahy, who's not part of this group, senator marco rubio who might run for president in 2016, there is, i mean, this is a senate development, but we've got a long way to go. it's got to get through the senate, it's going to be a slew of amendments, maybe 100 amendments on the senate floor, and then they've got to merge these bills. and remember, in 2007 president g
, including his ideas about eliminating nuclear weapons. hagel supports an international movement called global zero that favors eliminating all such weapons. >>> political insiders say it looked more like a campaign event than a presidential speech. president obama pushed for immigration reform before an enthusiastic crowd in las vegas yesterday. his proposal is very similar to one being put forth by a group of bipartisan senators. >> action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. >>> and obviously, this is -- there's certainly -- the chances are higher now that something is going to happen on this issue compared to years past. the biggest hurdle, though, is that folks who aren't too crazy about this idea are saying in order for these things to happen, let's focus on border security. if all these folks will just flood into the country, it makes no difference what we're doing on the legislative side of things. so border patrol at the same time we're creating this pathway. >> but something is going to be done. at this point, given the number

in an eight-hour period yesterday. the first crash occurred midday near seminole, oak cla home la when a pilot crash landed in a field and all four crew members were injured in that crash but just eight hours later, 9:00 p.m. local time, a chopper responding to a call went down near ventura, iowa, killing all three members of the crew. neither of the helicopters had patients on board when it they went down. a rash of events a few years ago prompted the ntsb to focus on medical helicopters specifically and medical planes. the pressure to quickly respond in various conditions at night, in foul weather, they make those operations inherently dangerous. the safety board made 19 recommendations, including better pilot training, especially for inclement weather, nine vision systems, flight data recorders with regular reviews of the data. both aircraft yesterday were just a few years old each and we know that the pilot in the fatal crash in iowa did have access to height vision goggles and newer technology but did not have a flight data recorder, wolf. >> what do we know about the companies that opera
